drill press power feeds

We have an old Carlton Drill press that is a monster. The power feed
stopped working yesterday. I adjusted the clutch behind the two handles you
pull to engage the feed but I still had no luck.
Are we looking at a stripped worm gear or do these monsters have shear
pins somewhere?? The power feed sometimes will work and feed the spindle
down but as soon as you exert resistance the feed stops. It is like a gear
is spinning on a shaft after breaking a key. Anyone had these kind of
troubles before?
